紐約布魯克林三人組 Sunflower Bean 首張專輯《Human Ceremony》,懷抱舒適復古迷幻搖滾!


紐約布魯克林三人組 Sunflower Bean, 由個性時尚女主唱兼貝斯手 Julia Cumming、男主唱兼吉他手 Nick Kivlen 和鼓手 Jacob Faber 於 2013 年組成,獨立錄製首支單曲「Bread」,深受經典 Black Sabbath、The Velvet Underground 與 Led Zeppelin 以及近年 Beach House 與 Tame Impala 還有 Thee Oh Sees 等樂團啟發影響,三位年輕好友一同玩音樂,探索迷幻搖滾、金屬與夢幻流行,希望在當今人工合成氾濫以及科技取向的社會中,找回一點復古存在與舒適感,回歸真實人性,進而賦予精神與心靈寄託的價值。






Tame Impala 曾於 2012 年創作「Led Zepelin」向其致敬,而 Sunflower Bean 則在 2014 年創作「Tame Impala」傳達敬意。他們在今年 2/5 推出首張專輯《Human Ceremony》,由美國獨立音樂廠牌 Fat Possum Records 發行,共收錄 11 首歌曲,專輯同名開場曲「Human Ceremony」傳達中心意象,吸引聽者往下抽絲剝繭;優美吉他線條竄動的「2013」,乘載成熟音樂能量;金屬主打「Wall Watcher」,在孤獨世界呼喊年少憂愁,感受後青春的搖滾重量;說總比做容易,柔軟嗓音飄散的「Easier Said」,夢幻流行釋放,沈浸舒服氛圍。宣傳新專輯的同時,目前也已經開始著手第二張專輯製作,繼續從過去與現今找尋靈感,發揮年輕世代勇於嘗試的精神,汲取和創新更多未來好作品,宣示搖滾精神永不滅!

Lyrics 歌詞:(by 好青年 整理)

You try hard to see but I'm lying
On the outside
Give me one more chance to see that
I'm in the right mind

Act so tough, make it prove
Don't be afraid to see it through
And I'm not scared to take a place
It's not your fault, emancipate

Easier said than done
I heard you right the first time
Easier said than done
I heard you right the first time

Trying to ride by our cabin
It's in my head
Should have just stayed home when I'd rather
Be alone instead

You're getting old
So act your age
It isn't fun
To make the same mistakes
So give it up, it's getting late
Make those moves
I'm not afraid

Easier said than done
I heard you right the first time
Easier said than done
I heard you right the first time
